Review quote

"Any European or world citizen should read this... History that illuminates the present day" -- T. S. Learner Big Issue "Books of real quality and importance are rare. Norman Davies's history of Europe is one of them. It is a brilliant achievement, written with intelligence, lucidity and a breathtaking width of knowledge... This is a book everyone should read" -- A. C. Grayling Financial Times "A noble monument of scholarship, and all the more noble because it is so full of surprise and feeling... There are superb assessments of vastly daunting subjects" -- Jan Morris Independent "Monumental, authoritative... A book for enquiring minds of all ages, it will answer hundreds of enquires and provoke thousands more" -- Noel Malcolm Sunday Telegraph "No history of Europe in the English language has been so even-handed in its treatment of east and west... Strong characterisation, vivid detail, trenchant opinions, cogent anaylsis all make this tremendous reading" Times Literary Supplement
